Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the restored Ziarat Residency of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on the 68th independence day on August 14, 2014. The Residency was restored at the cost of Rs140 million by Baluchistan government in four months after it was destroyed in June last year.
